Acupuncture recognized as independent medical system in Indi
Acupuncture has been recognised as an independent medical system in India. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (Department of Health Research) has released an order stating that acupuncture has been recognised as an independent medical system in India.

An inter-departmental committee was constituted on October 20, 2016 for identifying new systems of medicine. Thereafter, a proposal for recognisation of acupuncture in India was given consideration. The proposal was examined and discussed by the committee on October 4, 2017 and January 9, 2018.

A 10-member committee, headed by a former director general of the Indian Council for Medical Research, has been formed to promote and regulate the alternative therapy, which many practitioners of modern medicine view skeptically due to lack of sufficient scientific evidence.

The committee, headed by V M Katoch, has been given three months to come up with suggestions, after which acupuncture may be taught at government and private institutions at the Bachelor and Masters levels.
